Mt. Tam Hill Climb - Practice Race Ride 9-20

The Tam Hill Climb is coming up on Saturday 9/27. I've always done a practice race/TT on the course 1 week prior, so I'll be doing that tomorrow Saturday 9/20.

Meeting points: SF side of GG Bridge: 7:45, Manzanita Park & Ride in Mill Valley: 8:10, Mill Valley Depot: 8:30, Race atart area at Stinson Beach 9:15.

We'll stop and regroup at Stinson Beach and start as a group doing a rotating paceline down Hwy 1 at race speed, Once the climb starts it's every man for himself, then we regroup at the finish.

Let me know if you're coming and where you plan to meet so I can look out for you. Feel free to invite anyone else.

Chris

Hmmm I think I might be down for this instead of the Canada TT.... I forgot to register anyway, and would have to do it via email.

Pete, do you want to turn this into something longer, or just do the 7 sisters after ward, head down Panoramic and go back home.

I was thinking, I would do this with you guys in the AM, then head back to the peninsula for a ride with Ruth. we'd be at the top by 10 or so right, and then back in SF by what 11:30-ish??

So, I could be in the Peninsula around lunch time to do a ride there.

Let me know if my timing is flawed.

I'm planning on being at the GGB at 7:45. I'll park at Sport's Basement and ride up the hill. What's the weather looking like?

If I do this ride, I will also park there.

The official finish line of the hill climb (and regroup spot) is at the parking lot at the south end of Ridgecrest - after the 7 sisters. If we head straight back to SF (via Pan Toll and Panoramic) after regrouping here then 11:30ish is a good estimate.

If people want to go a little longer we can drop back to Stinson and head back south on Hwy 1.

Cloudy/overcast most likely until Stinson, temp around 60 degrees, then warming and sunny as we start climbing, maybe mid to high 60's. Perfect!

Cool. I'm probably in. Depending if I wake up on time

I'll be heading straight back to SF (via Pan Toll and Panoramic) afterward, so I can go ride in the peninsula with Ruth after she sleeps in.

This is my "Whack" plan...Race to the top, race back to the bridge, race to BArt, backwards on George's loop and meet up with those guy's. Can't miss a first time G man ride...It wouldn't be right!

Gonna have to pass on this ... besides, I'm not gladiator status yet. Got some things to take care of in the morning ... most likely do something in the late morning or early afternoon.

Triple crown ... it's just persistence, that's all. I didn't even know I was considered a gladiator. Hail Cesar!

Sorry I didn't make it.

Was out late in SF last night, and was too tired to get out of bed at 5AM.
